'''Baseball''' is a popular sport in the {{g|[[Pokémon world}}]]. It is usually represented through episodes of the {{g|[[Pokémon anime}}]] that feature {{an|Casey}}, a big fan of baseball.
Three episodes have featured baseball as a major theme:
* The inclusion of baseball in Pokémon, where the focus is on {{g|[[Pokémon battle}}]]s, is likely due to its high popularity in Japan. During the baseball season, it is common for there to be weeks where no new episode of Pokémon airs due to [[TV Tokyo]] choosing to broadcast the game instead.
* [[Brock]] used baseball as a theme when he made an appeal with his {{TP|Brock|Bonsly|Sudowoodo}} in the contest in ''[[AG167|What I Did for Love]]''. He pitched baseballs to Bonsly, who caught and juggled them.
* The colors of Team Electabuzz; black and gold; are the same colors as that of the {{wp|Pittsburgh Steelers}}, {{wp|Pittsburgh Pirates}}, and {{wp|Pittsburgh Penguins}}.
